Abstract

Study Objective: To assess the feasibility and efficacy of laparoscopic lymphadenectomy in patients with isolated lymph node recurrences (ILNR) who underwent initial surgery because of gynecologic malignancy. Design: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-3). Setting: University teaching hospital. Patients: Six patients with ILNR (1 cervical, 4 ovarian, and 1 peritoneal) diagnosed between March 2003 and July 2010. Intervention: Laparoscopic lymphadenectomy. Measurements and Main Results: Median (range) patient age was 59.5 (24-70) years, and body mass index was 21.7 (21.0-24.6). There was no unplanned conversion to laparotomy. Operating time was 337.5 (200-400) minutes, hemoglobin change was 0.9 (0.4-2.6) g/dL, and hospital stay was 8.5 (5-19) days. The number of harvested lymph nodes was 20 (5-27), and of positive lymph nodes was 4 (1-24). One patient had common iliac vein laceration, with complete hemostasis achieved using intracorporeal suture. Postoperative lymphedema occurred in 1 patient, and was managed conservatively. All patients received adjuvant chemotherapy after laparoscopic lymphadenectomy. Conclusion: Laparoscopic lymphadenectomy in patients with ILNR is feasible and might be an alternative therapeutic strategy.
